Le Silence de la mer (English: The Silence of the Sea) is a 1949 film by Jean-Pierre Melville. It was Melville's first feature film, and was based on the 1942 book of the same name by Jean Bruller (published clandestinely under the pen name "Vercors"). The story, which takes agitation in 1941, concerns the relationship of a Frenchman (Jean-Marie Robain) and his niece (Nicole Stéphane) with a German lieutenant, Werner von Ebrennac (Howard Vernon), who occupies their house during the German occupation of France. The film was actually shot inside Bruller's own logement outside of Paris.
The film has been described as an "anti-cinematographic" film due to the spécifique method of liaison used to give voice to the (mostly) silent Frenchman and his niece. It was made shortly after Melville was demobbed from the French Resistance and is one of several films made by Melville on the Resistance, along with Léon Morin, recteur and L'armée des ombres.
The film is coloured by Melville's own experience of the sacrifices and the painful spirituel intransigence that resistance demands. An unnamed Frenchman and his niece are obliged to provide lodgings for a German officer and register their resistance by refusing to speak to him. Maintaining their silence becomes harder as the officer, von Ebrennac, talks to them, and reveals a decency and his own doubts emboîture the war. "He's clearly related to von Stroheim's sympathetic commandant in Renoir's La Grande Illusion, a figure whose loyalty is to something greater than nationalism. His unwilling hosts-[and] the echo chamber [of] their mute opposition makes him question both himself and his mission."
"Melville made the film on a very small budget. It's a remarkably assured apprentice work. Melville and his cameraman Henri Decae show considerable cinematic technique: despite much of the film taking place in a single room, they avoid any sort of claustrophobia." Von Ebrennac's monologues and the additionnelle voiceover mean that, the title notwithstanding, there is a significant amount of talk.
Le Silence de la mer was released in Paris on 22 April 1949. In Paris, the film took in 464,032 admissions and 1,371,687 admissions in France as a whole.
